Only means they will work together as they have in the past. Nothing more....nothing less.
Doesn't mean they are taking over.

It's about time! This has been in the works for years. With OSF, maybe KH will become a better hospital. Btw, I've heard a lot of horror stories about Geneseo hospital lately too. Princeton seems to be a good option. haven't heard much about them.

no hospital is perfect. St Francis has many many many multi million dollar law suits against them right now.
accidents happen.
be thankful that the hospital is there and in a TRUE emergency it serves it's purpose.

I totally agree! I think considering that KH is in a small town the microscope put on the occasional problem makes them bigger than they should be.

If this really does happen, it will be wonderful for Kewanee and surrounding communities. The Hospital will change its name, better care, better doctors, better people working there. It would be a win win for our area!!!
yes sir

My understanding is. They really don't want the hospital. But trinity is trying to get a hold of some of the area and they are blocking it by taking the hospital.

So I'm guessing no new drs. our personnel. A few will get let go. They won't need all the office personnel and a few others.
